Our MISSION is to protect the public from hazardous conditions related to construction and to increase energy efficiency through education and enforcement of adopted building, energy, mechanical, plumbing, and electrical codes. The Nampa Building Department strives to provide effective and responsive plan review and inspection services within the Nampa city limits through the enforcement of State adopted building codes for the health, safety, and welfare of citizens of the community. Enforcement is achieved through plan review prior to the issuance of permits and on-site inspection. After permit issuance, Building Inspectors verify compliance throughout the construction process. Permits are required before performing any new construction, building addition, alteration or repair of existing buildings and structures; including all plumbing, electrical, or mechanical work.


The City of Nampa offers a unique opportunity for commercial developers, builders, and property owners to meet with our staff from various approval departments to discuss local codes and requirements for their projects at no charge. Meetings are typically scheduled for Thursday mornings but special times and arrangements can be made upon request.

CPR meetings provide answers to a wide range of development questions including but not limited to: Planning, Fire, Building and Public Works Department requirements, sewer and water availability and capacities, traffic concerns, Southwest District Health requirements for restaurants, and permitting requirements.
